Avio SPA plant

Colleferro, 17 November 2020 – Tonight during the Vega VV17 mission with the SEOSAT-Ingenio and Taranis satellites onboard, after 8 minutes from take-off and after the nominal trajectory recorded for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd stage engines and after the first nominal ignition of the last stage engine, an anomaly has occurred, which caused a trajectory deviation entailing the loss of the mission.

Data analyses are in progress to determine the causes.
